I started to read a fresh, new Bible–the ESV study Bible–because my precious green NIV study Bible has fallen to shreds. I actually read them side-by-side to see the slight variation in translation.
It’s a joy to think about fresh insights, fresh highlighting, and fresh commentary on the most beloved psalms. Today, I look at Psalm 25:12-13 in the ESV. I read, “Who is the man who fears the Lord? Him will he instruct in the way that he should choose. His soul will abide in well-being.” I love thinking about God instructing us when we have to make a choice. And I love this concept of abiding in well-being. How marvelous!
Since I’m on the theme of the Lord’s instruction, I underline Psalm 32:8 where the Lord says, “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you.” When I think about God’s loving eye upon us to instruct and teach us, it fills my heart with peace.
